Rockwell Collins introduces software programmable switch panels for cabin management systems

Rockwell Collins today announced a new line of Software Programmable Switch Panels that will provide business jet passengers more user-friendly control over their cabin environment, while giving aircraft manufacturers an efficient, standard part that serves many applications. The new line of Switch Panels will be available in summer of 2008.

Rockwell Collins' Software Programmable Switch Panels offer an icon-based means for business jet passengers to access and control a full range of cabin amenities and services.  The Switch Panels provide passengers with complete control over all available cabin and entertainment features, and when accompanied by Rockwell Collins' Media Center Device with Moving Map, offer integrated real-time flight information, such as Time to Destination and Ground Speed.  Passengers can also receive flight status updates through a full color, OLED display with a high contrast ratio and wide viewing angle.   

"The Software Programmable Switch Panels are designed to provide an exceptional user experience by creating a cabin environment directly suited to the passengers' needs," said Tommy Dodson, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins.  "This approach – which provides an unprecedented combination of user-friendliness and advanced capabilities – transforms flight time into a personalized event."  

The Software Programmable Switch Panels also provide cabin environmental settings, entertainment source control and audio/video source selection, including Media Center Devices, DVD Players, XM Radio Receivers, satellite TV, cameras and a variety of carry-on devices through auxiliary ports.   

Rockwell Collins is also developing an intuitive, easy to use configuration tool for customizing the Programmable Switch Panels as part of a total aircraft interior specification.  The tool will utilize a library of templates for standard aircraft configurations, as well as an easy way to make custom configurations.
